    I’ll always remember you.! We were neighbors a long time. We would take walks with muffin. You always would dress to the hilt. I’ll miss you.

    My beautiful mother! We miss you so very much! I hope you are with dad and you both are shining like a diamond above!
    I know in my heart that you are welcome in the arms of Jesus into heaven and he had your mom, dad, your sister Blanche and all your loved ones who passed before you waiting to embrace you! I will forever be grateful for all your sacrifices that you did for me! I can’t believe your gone, but I am at peace that your no longer suffering with confusion that the dementia had left you in these past years! I love you momma so very much ❤️
